Brian,
Another option to beat the traffic...

You guys are more than welcome to bring your Airstream down to Manchester the weekend before the rally and practice semi-boondocking on our property. Leave it there until the next weekend and you are only 40 miles from Lake Harding. You can use state route 85 south to get to Manchester and a few miles from the farm.

Sugarfoot,

burnt offerings are my specialty lately. Having a rough tme with cooking. Biggest problem is I don't want to!!

We are in for the cookout Sat night. Do we chip in funds for meat and bring dish to pass, or bring favorite grill offering and dishes to pass.
Let us know.

Marie

I understand Marie. Thing with me is I don't get into cooking so much at the house. But I get these high aspirations when camping and start cranking out dishes for the heck of it. Go figure.

I'm not sure how we're doing the meat thing. That's up to you carnivores. But bringing a side to pass is always welcome. I think we stopped signing up for dishes a few rallies back. Kinda laissez-faire now, just bring something you like and everyone else will eat it . . . trust me.

I do requests on ingredients. Let me know if you want sliced mushrooms, salad shrimp, or "straight up".
All pasta salads come with tortellini and assorted veggies in a creamy Italian dressing.

Yum! Veggies for me, hold the meat. No broccoli please, or it won't be pretty.

Way to work it, Marie! Get hubby to do the cooking. You go, girl!

I usually bring Key Lime Pie and that sounds summery to me so put me down for that. I will have to cut it the night before to make sure it's a pie. Last time I made two at one time, in the same oven at the same time, even mixed the custard together and poured half in one pie crust and half in the other. One set and the other...well, it turned out to be Key Lime pudding in a graham cracker crust with a nice meringue on top!

You must have your JUST DESSERTS! I thought beer & wine were (was?) the other food group.

You can ask Marie about her famous Jell-o Soup...

Brian, you can get to Manchester easily using 2 lane back roads from your place if you want to avoid the Atlanta traffic. Here's a short version:

Take Hwy 11 to Walnut Grove then to Covington.
From Covington, take Hwy 81 to McDonough.
From McDonough, take Hwy 155 to Griffin.
From Griffin, take Hwy 19 to Zebulon.
From Zebulon, take Hwy 18 to Woodbury.
From Woodbury, take Hwy 85 to Manchester.

These are all good roads, all of it 2 lane except for maybe 10 miles. It'll take you maybe 2 hours to drive it. We travel these roads all the time to visit family. One of these days we'll get down to Martin's place for a visit (that offer is still good, isn't it, Martin?). It's near my family's "old home place" in Warm Springs. Martin published a few pictures here on the forum a while back. Looks "just like home"!

Jim

Airstreams always welcomed. Just bring food and brew.
We are working hard on various areas to give visitors a camping spot with a sense of privacy. Your own grove of trees, view, etc. Some with power, some for boondocking. A forum rally is in the future. Get those tires mounted and come on down. We are there almost every weekend.

Let's see if this link will work.
4180 Chalybeate Springs Rd, Woodland, GA 31836 - Google Maps

Pointer is at the entrance on the southeast corner of the property.
Largely defined by the gravel road that loops back around to the paved road.
The large straight line clearing is a power line that runs east and west.
We sell hay from the cleared "pasture" areas to pay taxes and use the wooded area for camping and wildlife viewing.

martin.
